"These are trying times, especially for the theater community," Restaino said. "Through the years, Michael Anthony Theatrical has worked with over five hundred professional performers and musicians. We are a family. Although we cannot share the stage together at this time, the creativity of the company and opportunity for our treasured performers must continue. We are so excited to open the 2021 season with the works of one of the most inspirational composers in Broadway's history, Jonathan Larson. Not only has Larson changed Broadway by introducing his new sound, but he has popularized theater for people of all backgrounds. I could not have asked for a better cast to deliver such meaningful lyrics and melodies. These performers are the real deal."

The Music of: Rent will premiere on Thursday, February 18th at 7:00PM EST on Michael Anthony Theatrical's Official Youtube channel.
